Hi,

Current linux ipv6 source address selection doesn't check if an address is illegal as specified in RFC2373 and the draft 'source address selection (s.a.s.)';

- RFC2373: must not use multicast and anycast address as source.
- I-D 's.a.s.': must not use 6to4, etc., as source.

Is there already any patch to improve the checking?  Thanks a lot.

Regards,
Moter
